COURSE PREREQUISITES: Successful completion of Accounting 401/601 (Financial Reporting I) and Accounting 409/609 (Accounting Information Systems). EXAMS: Exams may consist of objective questions (multiple choice, etc.) and/or essay questions. Questions may cover anything contained in your textbook readings and/or other assignments (whether or not covered in the lectures) and/or classroom lectures (whether or not covered in the readings). The final exam will be comprehensive. Makeup exams will only be given to students with the following excused absences: illness or accident (you must provide documentation of treatment by a health professional), death in the immediate family, or participation in a universitysponsored event. In all but emergency cases, you should notify me BEFORE the exam. STUDY TEAMS: To take advantage of the synergy that results from working in teams, we will divide the class into study teams. Many class discussions will take place in these teams and quizzes will be taken in a team format. QUIZZES: To bring a "realworld" perspective to the classroom, case studies pertaining to the topics being discussed will be utilized. You are expected to have thoroughly analyzed the case BEFORE the class discussion and considered the questions assigned. Your answers should be thoroughly researched using your textbook and other available materials. The answers to these questions will not be collected, but the case analysis quizzes will often cover similar topics. Class quizzes will cover the assigned case, and will be taken with your study group.
